The Hero’s Journey of Idilio Galeotti

What is the best thing I love about my job? I love the unpredictability of creativity in creating a work of art, every time while starting from a project, I let myself go to the sensations and emotions that I perceive in the construction phase of the work.

What do the words “Passion never retire” mean to me? Picasso said when he was 90 years old, he said that he seemed to have so much to do and that he had so many projects to carry out. I think it’s a concept in which I recognize myself.

Which creative heroes should invite Peter to tell their story? Some people have already dealt with my story, who came to make me minterviste3 and a book should soon be published on my artistic career and in the social field. Then if others want to take care of it I would be pleased, as I am interested in a comparison and cultural exchanges. I believe that art is never an end in itself, but must set itself the goal of looking to the future to improve the society in which we live.
